In this laboratory study using 11 soils from 7 major orders in the U.S., the movement and retention of As, Be, Cd, CN, Cr, Cu, Hg, Ni, Pb, Se, V, and Zn when carried by municipal solid waste (MSW) leachate through soils was influenced by the individual properties of the elements, by the permeability of the soil, and by the amounts of clay, lime, and hydrous iron oxides present in the soil. The movement of iron was also studied; its movement and retention in soil were related most strongly to the content of clay and hydrous iron oxides. Total Organic Carbon (TOC) and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) in MSW leachate were only slightly retained by soils. A simulation model for predicting solute concentration changes during leachate flow through soils was developed and partially validated using data from the project.
